The Hockey Development Committee (HDC) was formed back in the winter and spring of 2009 by a group of coaches trying to make OYHA the best place for hockey in Wisconsin. The HDC is a subcommittee that reports to the Youth Hockey Committee for all of its work.
The HDC oversees tryouts, coaching, on and off-ice hockey development, coaching development and much more.
The HDC consists of:
Rob Haswell (Committee Chair)
Shannon Bartlett (Past Committee Chair / Co-Founder)
*"At Large" or non-voting probationary member
Each level of OYHA has its own dedicated HDC Representative that you can contact to discuss any issue or ask any questions you might have. You are always free to approach any HDC member about any issue but it is best if you contact your level representative as a start if at all possible.
Level Reps for 2018/19 Season:
LTP (Mini Mites): Caitie & Mark B.
8U (Mites): John Elser & Bill G.
10U (Squirts) : Adam & Nick
12U (Pee Wee) : John & Mike
14U (Bantam) : Rob & Jason
GIRLS TEAMS : Shannon
HDC Meetings are open to any members of the OYHA. If you would like to speak at a meeting or have an issue addressed, you must contact the HDC Chair and have your item added to the agenda. Due to the sensitive nature of some issues discussed, portions our our meetings may be held in closed session to protect the privacy of those involved.
HDC Meetings are held the second Monday of the month at 6:30pm at the OIC Meeting room - with the exception of October when we do not meet due to Tryouts. If a meeting time is changed it will be posted here.
